Vera: an Appreciation
My obsession with all things Vera grew slowly. When I lived in Boston and roomed with my extraordinary friend Aliza, who went on to foundTruth Serum Productions. We’d be at a thrift shop and she’d say, “Ooh, there’s a pile of scarves. Maybe one’s a Vera. You could hang it on your wall.”
Instead, I bought a tray on eBay, so I can imagine serving guests cocktails on it this summer.
I did buy scarves too, but never to hang on my wall. I own a bunch of long, rectangular scarves that I pair with coats from Tulle throughout our long winters.
This one is my favorite.
I’m not sure how I decided to start collecting linen towel calendars. Why 1971? I’ll never tell.
Below are a few other tidbits (clockwise from upper left): original box from 1971 elephant calendar, mod red scarf, Inga and a scarf that was my grandmas, a few sheers, a mum placemat, my first scarf — thanks, Mom!
